This stunning Dragon Caucasian Kilim was made between 1930-1940 which makes it approximately 80-90 years old. The rug/carpet measures 6’7”x9’4” and is made with the finest sheep wool and naturaly obtained colours that are sourced locally. The Kilim has a unique structure where the wefts are used as design elements and not just for structural purposes. This type of kilim is called a Soumak Kilim. Soumak Kilims are genrally superior in construction when compared to other types of Kilims. The design showcases the dragon motif that is repeated four times on the field of the rug/carpet along with two central medallions. The border has the wine glass motif that is repeated throughout. Colours include mainly beige, brick, green, grey and black. The Socio-Ethnographic conditions that existed at the time of making this are non existant today, making these extremely rare and sought after carpets/rugs.
